Facebook is killing Paper

Facebook is killing Paper

Bryan Clark for The Next Web:

Paper was beautifully designed and almost universally adored by the design community for its novel animations, clean UI and immersive experience that provided an entirely ad-free way to view your newsfeed. The app transformed the typical newsfeed into a Apple News-esque reader, complete with customizable sections for a variety of topics from food to politics.

I think I understand why they're moving away from the app — likely because Paper doesn't encourage the velocity normal users require while browsing Facebook — but damn if it isn't disappointing. Paper was unlike anything Facebook has ever done and likely will ever do again.
